Teenage mystery with a great setting
on 22 March 2013
How to Fall takes place in a perfectly drawn coastal village where everyone knows everyone's business, with a cast of characters that cover the whole spectrum from batty old ladies to bad girls and misunderstood boys, and a policeman with designs on the main character's mother... maybe...
Jess Tennant is the kind of teenager that most girls aspire to be: intelligent, pretty, funny, sarky and most of all, intuitive. The plot could be loosely described as a 'whodunnit', with Jess trying to uncover the mystery of what really happened to her dead cousin Freya; but it's much more than that.
I've recently read quite a few YA novels and despite being far from a YA myself I'm finding that it's becoming one of my favourite genres. I'll definitely be reading the next in this series.
